The Marijn Beije floating eco lodge was designed to put people more in touch with nature. The construction of the accommodation allows the dweller to sit directly on top of a body of water or nestle snugly into the branches of a tree.

The environmentally friendly materials used in the abode include FSC-certificated wood and solar panels to reduce the human footprint left behind when lodging outdoors. The bulb-shaped pod moves slightly with the breeze and includes sleeping accommodations for up to four people. It also comes equipped with all of the amenities including a shower and kitchen facilities.

Featuring floor-to-ceiling curved windows, the home away from home allows for guests to take in a stellar view of the natural elements surrounding them before being softly rocked to sleep.
